Huh? No..

I think you're misunderstanding/misinterpreting something, but I can't
really think of what..

INBOX is a special mailbox. Setting inbox=yes changes nothing except
where INBOX's location is looked up from. No other mailboxes are
affected. Listing/opening RealMails/INBOX might or might not work,
depending on configuration. But that shouldn't be an issue, since INBOX
is accessed directly as INBOX.
